What a way to celebrate the US independence.

... we picked Beer Bar as our final stop for beersssss!


... Kilkenny draft on our first and second round.


... on our 3rd round, we had Hoegaarden. I'd want to try it because I never had it before.

Kilkenny draft was great. A little bit of glistering taste like Heineken, which I like. As for Hoegaarden, which was my first time. It tasted like ginger ale without sugar and a tad sourish. HL said it’s the beer for ladies. I guess I’ll stick with Kilkenny, or Heineken if I want budget drink.

Oh, I almost forgot. I actually don’t fancy beers. So I don’t really drink.

... Kuma wanted to try the vegetarian steamed glutinous rice.


... Kuma also wanted to try the nasi lemak with ayam rendang.


... ALGJ ordered the curry laksa.


... tea and coffee mixed.

It’s my first time trying the vegetarian steamed glutinous rice. It looks unappetizing and the rice was too soft and sticky. The only ingredient in it other than the glutinous rice was the vegetarian BBQ pork. Kuma was complaining about the lacking of chicken meat. The curry laksa was acceptable, but not the best I’ve had. Today’s cham peng was quite nice with nice creamy foam.

Homemade Dumpling

... as usual, I'll ask for both benta kaya and gula melaka for my homemade dumpling.

Rating: 4.5/10

I don’t have any appetite today, so I’ve only ordered homemade dumplings for lunch. My homemade dumplings came very late cause the waitress didn’t not place my order, despite I made it clear to her that I wanted both benta kaya and brown sugar as condiments. The taste was pretty much the same as the last time I had it.

After our heavy breakfast, we went hunting for dessert as according to the magazine. Boy, the place was hard to locate before it was not POI on my GPS map. Fortunately, we managed to find it by asking the local though.

... it's called the 8-treasure snow. I supposed there were 8 different ingredients in it, excluding the syrups and ice, of course.

While still quite full from the breakfast, I took on a whole bowl of ais kacang. The syrup used was rather exquisite. It was quite nice, though it was very sweet too. Be sure to drink a lot of water after that. EL was saying that, instead of normal sugar syrup, a kind of herbal syrup (八寶) was used. Worth a try as it was different from what I usually get, and it doesn’t come with the weird or bad after taste like those I had in KV. lol

When I was served my sizzling noodle, it doesn’t sizzle at all. The noodle was very soft, as if it was over soaked. The sauce on the noodle was nice though. As for the vegetarian popia that I ordered, it was rather unexpected. Reminded me of the sushi from Organic Vegetarian Fresh Mart. All the gratted vegetables as the centre of the roll.

After having asam laksa, we went for dessert. The famous cendol stall in Penang Road. There were 2 stalls opposite to each other, but the stall was basically swatting flies busy. I’ve had this many years ago. It seems, the taste doesn’t change much, if I recalled correctly. The lacked of fragrance from the brown sugar made this cendol rather Plain Jane. Give me Nancy’s Kitchen‘s cendol anytime, or even PappaRich‘s will do.
